    The dining was an interesting experience. The environment was very classy. The servers were kind. However, the food was incredibly expensive, and not particularly worth the price. For instance, lobster mac & cheese side dish cost $50. It’s the cost of most main entrées. Understandably, because it had lobster, but still the most expensive lobster mac & cheese we’ve ever ordered, and not particularly any different in taste. The receptionists at the onset of our arrival could benefit from actually smiling to the guests. There was two, and neither of them cared to greet us with any passion other than to just seat us. They gave us the impression that the restaurant was the last place they wanted to be. For a meal that cost close to $300 for just two people, a smile would have been a very inexpensive way to show some courtesy. Nevertheless, our servers were very kind, and helpful. The food was fine, but again, not necessarily worth it given it was incredibly expensive in cost. The dining room is beautiful, and the patrons were well-behaved. We probably wouldn’t eat here again, unless we were prepared to spend an incredible amount of money. Anyway, it was a nice experience to have visited at least once.

    I found the waiter Alanto be exceptional. The hostesses were haughty and that is being nice. The waiter gave excellent suggestions and even convinced my wife to try the Beet Salad which she loved. HIS support staff was the reason for the poor service. We were served our first course and had to find someone to give us flatware. At one point prior to that some unknown and not introduced person came by and took our bread plates. My wife's Ahi had no flavor. There were people nearby who had obviously been over served and were beyond loud. There also seems to be NO dress code. Is there not a place to go in KC to celebrate with some degree of decorum? I'm still looking. Alan provided a dessert for our anniversary and that was nice but I don't think I'll be back. I long for the days of the American Restaurant.

    Overall the experience was exceptional. My only suggestion would be to ask for the wait staff to disclose the price of the specials if it is a considerable amount more than the normal menu pricing. One of the individuals in our party received sticker shock when his 'special' was almost 50% than the most expensive item on the menu.

    Absolutely delicious dinner! All of the people in our party had different dishes. Hands down the Chilean sea bass and the sea scallops were our favorites. However, you can’t miss with the grouper or twin lobster tails. Great place for a special dinner celebration.

    Great Food. Loved the scallops, filet mignon, 14 oz steak, mashed potatoes, mushrooms, brussel sprouts, peanut butter chocolate desert along with carrot cake and beet salad. I prefer my creamy spinach side a little less like a dip and more like spinach.

    We had the worst experience at Ocean Prime on Saturday. We were there to celebrate my husbands birthday and anything that could go wrong did. The waiter, while he was nice, spilled an entire glass of water on the table which wet the front of my dress. They did change the linen but I sat wet for hours. No ones enjoyed their food. The Sea Bass was extremely fishy tasting so I kindly requested a different dish. My husband steak which was supposed to be Medium Well was well done and very charred on outside. My friends steak was rare not medium. When the manager came over she was extremely rude and rolled her eyes while talking to us a making condescending comments. For the price and service, I will never go back. Not the best birthday experience for my husband. Lastly, we were all sick that night after the meal, which is an added layer of frustration. Again, we will not be returning!!

    The restaurant was great as was the staff. Got the 14oz strip and added lobster tail. The lobster tail was very small for 30 bucks and the steak was good but not great as far as flavor. 2 people with 2 sides and 1 drink was 300 bucks. Nice place but expensive for just average food in my opinion

    Giovani was our server and was amazing. We celebrated my wife’s birthday and she wanted a drink from the bar upstairs. He made it a point to order and serve her one. He was so accommodating and the service men and women that assisted him attended to our table regularly, with grace. We would highly recommend eating her to our friends. Ask for Giovani! ❤️

    The atmosphere over all was decent. You could feel the vibes and ambience was very inviting. The drinks were great HOWEVER the server was rushing, didn't give us much time to relax or talk. Food was very flavorless, zero flavor and greasy. I'm not the type to adhere to bad reviews but yeah no flavor and greasy.

    I was not a big fan of the community table seating. The food was awesome - the quality there never disappoints. The service was very good. Prices are pretty high - that is likely not their fault, but it will reduce the frequency of my visits.

    The restaurant ambience was great. The server was terrible. I had the surf and turf Oscar style. There was maybe a half teaspoon of crabmeat on the steak. I ordered a medium pink in the middle filet. It came well done and was tuff as shoe leather. It was 20 minutes between when we were done with our salad and the main course arrived. No explanation from the waitstaff. Food is way over priced for what you get. Will not return!!!!
